Finally did something besides fix the stuff I broke!

I replaced my driver's side door seal as the old one was trashed. Door is definitely harder to close now, and hopefully less wind resistance.

Also was about to put on the winter tires (yes, we get rain here, and I sometimes drive where there is snow on the road). I had bought a used set of 18" wheels w/Michelin M&S tires a number of years ago. While inspecting the tires, I noticed that they were 9 years old and had a large number of cracks in them. Time for new tires! So, since the wheels weren't super nice, I decided now was a great time to refinish them as I wouldn't have to mask the tires! So I did a quickie sand, prime, paint, clear late this afternoon and they came out looking decent. Definitely 10 foot view or further is best, but that's 1000% improvement from what they used to look like. Didn't think to take pics, as I was in the zone getting stuff done instead of breaking stuff. Yay!

Nothing like a project that is not two steps forward and one step back.

Just finished my winter prep this weekend. Pics forthcoming after I replace my busted side markers.

1) Uber Gray clay bar on windows
2) Nanoskin Fine grade autoscrub mitt on entire car including a 2nd round on the windows
3) Paint inspection, I still have slight swirling and imperfections that I will correct with a medium grade polish/Uber Orange pad in the spring, for now I just wanted clean paint and protection
4) Prima wheel sealant on my 168's
5) Adam's In and Out/Adam's Super VRT on black trims and tires
5) Menzerna Power Lock on all painted parts, and shadowline trim, allowed to haze and cure for 3 full days before wiping off residue

Reinstalled my HID fog lights yesterday, need to do aiming tonight, installed the H3C Morimoto kit into GENUINE VALEO units, expecting wonderful results.

I might add a top coat of Sonax Polymer Netshield as a topper just for fun this weekend, at that point I might as well just spray the car with soap and dry it because the beading will be so ridiculous I won't be able to wash the car and have it stay wet LOL!


And lastly, since we are talking about what I did today, ordered 2 new PDC sensors to replace my two broken ones from this seller on ebay, paid $34 shipped for 2 sensors, will update on the install and quality, as long as it fits and works I won't complain, and I will put back in the PDC fuse and enjoy working Parktronic for the first time since buying my X 2 years ago!

Someone decided to









Nobody hurts. The DINAN tips cut 2 nice round holes in that bumper.

Edit: didnt see the bottom info.....Glad no one was hurt! Someone obviously wasn't paying attention!

It must have been a pretty hard impact to move the the X like that!

Tmv, very sorry.

I just relived the sinking feeling when you are hit, the instant denial--well maybe it just scuffed the paint and then the self control it takes when you see the damage.
